to what romney said during his convention acceptance speech. >> president obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans. [ laughing ] and to heal the planet. my promise is to help you and your family. [ cheering ] >> cenk: unless of course your family is in the middle of hurricane sandy good luck to you. i'm not going to help you at all. they literally think the climate change is a punch line. the planet, it's getting warmer. isn't that funny as your family is in great danger over it. ha ha, ha, ha, yeah, really funny. really appreciate it. who are the people who are putting any of this into doubt in the first place? of course, the republicans. listen to this crap that they pedal out of "daily basis"." >> how do you explain the heat? summer. we have hot weather, get over it. >> that global warming thing is really kicking into high gear, isn't it. >> the issue of global warming has been fortified through substantial number of scientist who is have manipulated data. >> the last year has established as a whole premise of man-made global warming is a hoax. >> the science is bad. >> u
the storm. this afternoon, president obama visited the red cross, national headquarters and mitt romney -- let's go to obama first. listen to him. >> we certainly feel profoundly for all the families whose lives have been up-ended. and are going to be going through some very tough times over the next several days. and perhaps several weeks and months. the most important message i have for them is that america is with you. we are standing behind you. we are going to do everything we can. to help you get back on your feet. >> dana: mitt romney attended a storm release event in ohio. listen to him. >> we have heavy hearts as you know, with the suffering going on and major part of our country. a lot of people hurting this morning. they were hurting last night. the storm goes on. i have had a chance to speak with some of the governors and the effected areas and they have talked about a lot of people having hard times. i appreciate the fact that people here in dayton got up this morning, some went to the grocery store, i see and purchased things that knows families will need. and -- things th
when he endorsed president obama specifically because of the president's leadership on climate change. he contrasted the candidates in this way. one sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics. with that, mayor bloomberg, as much as hurricane sandy has forced climate change into the middle of the presidential race. hallelujah. that's exactly where it should be. someplace where republicans can no longer ignore it. not to say they're not going to try. governor romney did his best today while he stood sort of oddly smiling and ulterly silent as a heck lir brought the issue to him during his remarks on the storm. [crowd booing] [crowd chanting u.s.a.] >> jennifer: that look on his face, it's as if he was reminding himself of the deal he struck to get this far. that he wouldn't talk about the climate. even though when he was governor he acknowledged global warming as a real problem
gasoline costs twice what it did when president obama took office. and when i'm elected, we're going to change the course of energy entirely. i know just how much energy means to middle class families in this country. we can help hold down prices in the pump and grow new energy jobs and new manufacturing jobs with my policies. and by the way, if the president were to be re-elected, he's going to continue to promote government and demote businesses. you know -- you know, he put together his own jobs council. business leaders he brought from all over the country. and there are people he picked. you know, it's been nine months since he's been willing to meet with his own jobs council? i see free enterprise as a means for people to fulfill their dreams. yesterday i met with a woman in richmond, virginia. she's been running her family restaurant for years. it's a business in her family for 82 years. at its high point she employed 82 people. she just closed it down. she told me that the regulations, the taxes, the cost of obama care, the obama era economy put her out of business much and s
. president obama is expected to leave the white house any moment now to head to new jersey where he can join new jersey governor chris christie on a tour of some of the areas hardest hit. we are also getting a better look this hour at what governor christie is calling the destruction too widespread for words. that includes long branch, 50 miles south of new york city. right now you're looking at a swimming pool, standby, full of debris from a building torn to shreds by wind and water. the sand stripped away and piled in the streets exposing beach heeds. we go south to spring lake, new jersey. that town is over 100 years old. a lot of folks go for vacation and the weekend that kind of thing. the longest portion of the boardwalk in the state of new jersey. you can see the remnants of it at the water line, the pounding surf tore off each and every board. further down the coastline there is total destruction in the beach community of seaside heights, home of an iconic amusement park, and now look at it. something about these images, something about the roller coaster, the ferris wheel in the oce
resources where they are needed as fast as possib possible. >> president obama has put disaster relief in high gear as millions across the east coast are in peril. >> the cooperation has been outstanding. >> romney's silence has been deafening. >> would you eliminate aid to fema if you were president? >> as hurricane sandy wreaks havoc across the northeast, first responders, nurses and neighbors have stepped up in tremendous acts of heroism. we'll take a look at these brave men and women tonight. but first we'll bring you the latest on the disaster across the northeast. >> good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. the aftermath of sandy is coming into focus and the destruction is heartbreaking. sandy's path devastated miles of shoreline and major communities. officials in nine states are reporting 44 deaths related to the storm. 23 of those here in the state of new york. it's estimated to cost between $30 and $50 billion. you only need to look at the images of the flooding to see why. a 14-foot storm surge in lower manhattan roadways were overflowing. tunnels filled with w
about 90 mosts. both the obama campaign and the romney campaign hope the numbers will boost those economic arguments they've been making through this campaign and right into the final days of the race. we have complete coverage of what to expect this morning. let's begin with christine. she's got a look at what we could see. >> could see an unemployment rate that kicks up to about 7.9%. that's the forecast of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall. you look at the job creation. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. t
of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> we have our dynamic jobs report duo, bernstein and mauri maurice. that's a good number. how is it? >> it's a good number when you consider the past couple of months moved up on the payrolls 84,000. one of the things i always like to do when we talk about this is smooth out the monthly noise in the data by taking ang average. if you look at the average over the past four months and the employment growth has picked up, it's 170,000 per month. if you look at the second quarter when we were in a definite slower job growth regime, we added 70,000 per month. what you hear the president reflecting on there and it's worn out in the numbers is acceleration. a faster pace of job growth that's a good thing. you mentioned the tick up in the unemployment rate. that increase is insignificant, but more importantly this time it's a function of more people coming into the labor market. a bunch of them got jobs, but more people came in than were employed. if that persists, it's actually a good sign suggesting that
. governor romney today focused on fund-raising for the victims of the deadly storm while president obama canceled his events through wednesday to monitor the aftermath in response to hurricane sandy from the white house. we have team coverage here tonight. rick leventhal on the devastated jersey shore. shannon green on the storm damage in virginia, and ed henry tonight from the white house on the storm's political impact and the campaigns that are, tonight, frozen in place. many east coast residents heard or read weather forecasts and there's speculation about hybrid storms of the hurricane and nor'easter, perhaps, a super storm, as sandy approached, and they were understandably skeptical of what often turns out to be exaggerated meteorological storm forecasts. tonight they and millions of others find themselves suffering through what has turned out to be the mass devastation, wreckage, and misery that had been forecast for the eastern seaboard. fox news correspondent rick leventhal has our report from point pleasant, new jersey. >> reporter: point pleasant beach is one of many seaside c
. in the barrio world, barack obama's policies were better. bill clinton in minnesota yesterday. talking about the global climate change and mitt romney's policies on a bat. we will hear from governor romney. he took a campaign event and made it into an egg acknowledgement of the storm and the victims. james in texas. an independent. caller: good morning. host: caller: good morning i am nearly 70 years old. i saw winterset were colder than normal. warmerwinters that were norma than normal. and i can remember in texas when, i have seen icicles 4 feet long hanging from the rafters and other times where it barely got cold. the earth has a cycle of warming and cooling cycles. one of the problems with sandy to me, they talk about the infrastructure being over, and the subway damage, the worst in 100 years. one of the reasons i think it is aging is because we are paying out so much in pensions and stuff to the union workers like feiu but we cannot afford any other -- money for the infrastructure. how banks that is the topic for the new york times front page. warnings said it could happen here. for n
of governor romney, president obama will probably say, i haven't gotten his official response, he will probably say the economy is expanding. it is going in the right direction. we need more time for number of new jobs we really need but we're going in the right direction. governor romney will almost certainly respond we're not growing fast enough. we could do a whole lot better without going into all this debt. bill: stuart, thank you. the closing argument for governor romney happens this afternoon. we'll show you which state he is making that in. it will be very interesting to many. thank you, stuart. see you 9:20 on fbn. you got it. martha. martha: let's get another look at this jobs picture. there is combination of 23 million americans who are either unemployed right now or what we call underemployed. more than 3.5 million of those folks have been unemployed a year or more. it taking average for 40.2 weeks for someone unemployed to find a job. that is a very long time. i don't have to tell any folks that are in that situation that is painful. here is another look at it, anothe
obama said about these numbers this morning in ohio. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs, and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> i want to talk about the economics and the politics of the report with our chief business correspondent ali velshi and john avalon. they're in ohio talking to the voters. ali, let's start with you since you have an economics, numbers guy here. >> yeah. >> we looked at this, and the economy stated by cnn money, they were twpg 125,000 jobs, so this number was higher at 171,000. so you have figures in august and september, also higher than we thought. what do we say about the overall growth and the health of the economy and the recovery? >> you and i talked about this before. i like the jobs creation or job loss numbers. the establishment survey more than i like the unemployment number. by the way, i feel the same way about it when it's low and when it's high. this is both ways. if you are mitt romney you get to say, the unemployment rate has gone hig
at the unemployment rate, over the last 45 months since president obama took office, the unemployment rate has come down. last month it was the lowest level since he took office. in fact, it was below where he took office, but the amount of job creation on a month-to-month basis has been slowing down. it's actually been a little bit smaller. so when you think about job creation and creating new jobs and driving the economy forward, that's an area where some economists will say it's not as strong. one area where we have seen jobs come back, and this was last month, is government work. one area where we've actually seen things drop off a bit is manufacturing, which has been one of the strongest sectors in our economy. >> thank you. norah? >>> for four days during superstorm sandy, president obama and mitt romney took it easy on each other, but on thursday they were back on the attack. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change. when i'm elected president on day one we'll bring real change to america. >> he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsi
chris christie who toured the destruction with president obama said some parts of the shore may never look the same again. >> the death toll reached 124 people with 56 in the united states. at least 28 in new york. and close to 5 million customers are still waiting for the power to come back on. >> cnn has the entire disaster zone covered this morning. our correspondents spanned out across lower manhattan and all up and down the jersey shore. >> first, the economic capital of our country is slowly getting back to normal this morning even while facing extreme damage. power outages and people having to walk for hours just to get to work. meantime, another hospital lost generator power in lower manhattan. right now hundreds of people are being pushed out of bellevue after hundreds of others were evacuated yesterday. our dr. sanjay gupta is live at bellevue but first to rob marciano. the governor says there will be no fares for subways, trains and buses but many of the bus and subway lines are still not up and running yet so how limited is transportation now? >> well, i can tell you from
away. crews spent the night draining a pond looking for those brothers. >> president obama will see the damage sandy left behind firsthand. he'll travel to new jersey to see the damage. christie is one of the romney's biggest supporters, but he commended the president on his handling of the crisis. president obama will not see the damage sandy caused in new york city in person. the obama administration says the president wants to make sure police and rescue aren't drawn away from their response to the disaster. the president often works with local police and first responders when the president travels to a disaster zone. new york city mayor michael bloomberg says he's fine with the president's decision. >> the governor of maryland and virginia will head to their respective states. virginia governor will go to chincoteague island while maryland governor will go to ocean city, where the town saw three feet of standing water due to flooding. and o'malley will visit the town of cristfield, which saw its worst flooding since gloria in 1985. news >>> news 4's melissa mollet is live in old
